CORPUS CHRISTI — After a few days of cool and dry weather, we are going to start to see the weather pattern shift once again. We've already started seeing some of that this afternoon with our high temperature bouncing back into the lower 80s.
Much of the cool air that came down with our last cold front already has retreated back to the north and northeast, but not after delivering lows in the 40s on both Saturday and Sunday morning.
Surface high pressure, which has moved off to our east, will give us return flow from the Gulf of Mexico and that means that we'll start to see our humidity levels rise for the start of the work week.
Tonight will be milder than this morning. We'll trade morning lows from the 40s to the low 60s! We'll see a few clouds roll, and there could also be a few spots of patchy fog, especially for low-lying areas. Low: 63 Wind: SSE 5-10 MPH
Monday will feature a good amount of clouds and sun with highs heading to above-seasonal average levels. High: 86 Wind: SE 10-15
By Tuesday and into Wednesday, our next cold front will be taking shape to our northwest and diving southward. During that process, we naturally stay warm and muggy here in South Texas as the winds off the Gulf rise northward to meet the front. So look for highs in the middle 80s with scattered showers and thundershowers in the area on Tuesday afternoon and lingering into Wednesday.
At this time, the front looks to arrive Wednesday evening into early Thursday morning. Much like our last front, the forecast will call for scattered showers and thunderstorms along the boundary and to move through with frontal passage along with plenty of wind from the north at 15-25MPH gusting over 30. By the Thursday morning commute, it appears that temperatures will dive down into the mid to low 50s. We'll look for skies to slowly clear out in the afternoon and highs will struggle to get into the low 60s.
Trick-or-treating looks dry, but the wind will still be on the brisk side with temperatures diving back down into the low 50s on their way into the low 40s by Friday morning. So it may be a good idea to wrap the little ones extra warm that night if you plan on venturing out.
We'll stay cool and dry through the weekend, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.
